A Palestinian man has stabbed and wounded two Israeli soldiers outside a settlement in the West Bank, before being shot dead, according to the Israeli military.

One of the soldiers was stabbed in the neck and taken to hospital in a critical condition.

The other was slightly hurt before he reportedly opened fire and killed the attacker.

It happened on a main road near the Jewish settlement of Maale Levona.

The dead man, thought to be 27-years-old, is said to have been identified by his father and a friend.

Israel saw a wave of similar attacks in the West Bank and Jerusalem last year, but the violence has mostly subsided.
